( 4UMF NEWS ) Woman Kills Teen Lover Over Broken iPhone:
Minutes after the couple quarreled at 1:30 a.m., the family of Frankie Hernandez found his broken body lying on Morris Ave. as Jasmine Diaz, 25, sped off in her SUV, police sources and the Hernandez family said.
Cops were investigating the death as a homicide.
“She ran over my baby twice!” said the victim’s devastated mother, Iris Hernandez. “I ran down to the street and it was too late. His head was crushed. He wasn’t moving. There was blood everywhere.”
Hernandez was pronounced dead at Lincoln Hospital. The troubled couple began dating about a year ago, and reportedly shared a volatile relationship.
Police found her hiding there and brought her to the 44th Precinct for questioning. No charges were immediately filed against her.
Hernandez’s devastated sister Yolanda said she had no doubt the hit-and-run was intentional.
“He was behind the vehicle. She got in the car and could see him behind in the mirrors,” Yolanda said. “It was done purposely. I know it was purposely.”
She sobbed uncontrollably as she clutched a picture of her brother.
“My brother’s dead!” she screamed. “He’s gone!”
According to family members, Hernandez accidentally dropped and broke Diaz’s iPhone — sending her into a rage.
“She was screaming at him about her cell phone,” said Iris Hernandez. “… He was saying it was an accident. She didn’t care. She was hysterical.”
The argument moved from the hallway at 1009 Morris Ave. to the street outside, and Iris Hernandez soon heard screams coming up to her apartment.
“I want her to rot in hell,” said Iris Hernandez. “Jail is too good for her. She needs to rot in hell.”
